Well, that's it, I've had enough. I've decided not to let the mainstream news get me down. The way things are going, you would think that the economy, society, and the environment are all sprinting to the finish line in the race of "Bad-to-Worse"! I wonder what could be accomplished if our collective attitudes were inversly proportional to all of this bad news. What if, instead, we were all in a race to go from "Good-to-Fantastic"! Who would win, and how would you get there?
When it was raining last week, my daughter found some art supplies and created pictures out of glitter and glue. She made all of the fun stuff....rainbows, Christmas trees, princesses, etc. When the light hit these little works of art, they turned into a magnificent set of gems.
I'm going to start this race by paying attention to detail. We can look at glitter rainbows and pass them off with a "good job kid". Or, we can look further and turn them into moments to be enjoyed. So watch out Brian Williams with your NBC Nightly News Webcast - I've got an arsenal growing and it's only going to get better!
